1-page Fact Sheet
You can copy this Fact Sheet and pass it out to participants. It was created so that participants are encouraged to have future conversations, using some of the ideas from the workshop to engage co-workers, client/constituents, family and friends. You can encourage them to place it near their desks, on the refrigerator or in their wallets for quick reference when initiating a discussion.

Supplemental Activities
These two activities can be added to the workshop at any time you think appropriate. They are both interactive and help participants practice thinking about their values, respectfully expressing their opinions, and having collaborative conversations.
